What a beautiful relaxing cruise with excellent food. Choice of ham, chicken,salads and bread rolls. The prawns and mussells were the freshest I have ever tasted. Staff were great and when I asked was there any more mussells another container was opened no problem even though most people had finished lunch. Afterwards up on top deck it was so relaxing sitting in the sunshine with a glass of wine and listening to easy music. Dessert was served which I hadn't expected. Beautiful pavlova. Not a lot of commentary but I feel this would have spoiled it a bit.Im sure there are sightseeing cruises if you want commentary. Only downfall was I thought it was a bit cramped where food was served and due to covid we had to go up table by table which meant a bit of waiting. But worth it in the end. Will do this cruise next time I visit Queensland as its excellent value for money.
